So We All Need To Stop And Take A Moment To Appreciate Andrei Markov
This guy has been around since the dawn of the new millennium. For a dude in his late 20's (me), Markov has been a staple on the blue line since I was in grade school.
Markov was tossing clappers and blocking shots while I was still trying to figure out how to date every girl in our grade school class.
The dude has been there through all the highs and lows, and some epic playoff series.
He's also had a lot of knee problems which has caused him to miss a ton of games. Keep that in mind when you look at the chart below.
Look at this:
Right behind the greatest Habs defenceman of all time. This guy is seriously flying under the radar. He has 36 points this season alone and nobody talks about him!
The guy is absolute an stud! He deserves our praise, and a little more love from the Montreal faithful who have been blessed with this Russian beast for the last (nearly) 20 years.
Also, on NHL 17 feel free to take Marky for a little skate in the offensive zone. He's got mad video game skills too.
Here's to you, Andrei. One of the greatest Canadiens of all time.
